After many years of using Sound Forge for wav editing, being a Cubase user and familiar with other Steinberg products, I finally took advantage of the recent promotional price and purchased WaveLab 9.5 Pro. I had not used WaveLab since version 5 or so, whenever it first started support of DVD-Audio via montage’s all those years ago. I never upgraded it back then, so I could not upgrade that old license.
ANYWAY, I primarily work with 5.1 .wav and .flac files, and was sorta shocked that I could not open these directly in WaveLab 9.5. This is very disappointing. For the cost of the software and the fact that it supports hundreds of channels, I cannot understand why I can’t just open a 5.1 audio file and edit it.
Is this something planned for the future?
